New Delhi, July 5 (UNI) A partly cloudy sky and South Easterly winds provided some relief from the sultry weather of the last few days, resulting in a fall of mercury to 37 Degree Celsius today.

The mild change in weather brought about a coolness in the air even though the humidity level rose to 60 per cent today.

The minimum temperature also decreased to 26 Degree Celsius from 26.5 Degree Celsius yesterday.

The overcast sky, which was accompanied by high speed winds was an indication that the Monsoons were on their way to the capital.

Weathermen said the build up of clouds over the Delhi skyline was a pre-monsoon phenomenon.

Though heavy showers of the kind that were witnessed on June 26 were not expected to lash Delhi at least for the next two days, the weather office has forecast light rains and thundershowers accompanied by squalls during the day today as well as tomorrow.

The capital could witness heavy rains by the late evening on July 7 or morning of July 8.

The South West monsoon has already reached some areas in Punjab like Ludhiana and Amritsar and though the scheduled date for arrival of monsoon in Delhi is June 29, the first monsoon rains have been eluding Delhi even a week after that date.
